Some methods that you might have overlooked. The most fun to be had is to discover these methods for yourself, but still, I share these ideas as spoilers so you can unlock them as you need.
Some of these tips are so obvious you’ll wonder why I posted them, but then I bet even some veterans will learn something.
While mining deposits with your terrain manipulator you can press T to enlarge the area to mine much faster.
You may need to have the correct quest selected from the log menu to advance it. This applies to the base computer research, check it with the right quest log selected as often as you can.
For your first ship upgrade it might be tempting to fix a busted old ship that you find in distress. These usually need a lot of work to get going, and are not worth the trouble. You might be better off saving up 3-5 Million credits and waiting at a Spaceport for a nice ship in your budget to arrive. If you wait at a Colossal archive in a system with a good economy you will see some nicer ships.
If you find an outpost or a settlement with a technology vendor you should set up a teleporter nearby – just a base computer, biofuel reactor and the teleporter is all you need there. You can teleport TO an unpowered teleporter, but to teleport back out you may need to add 5-6 carbon to the reactor. If you have the Teleporter menu open and it runs out of power you can still teleport.
If you need to quickly return to your base to grab something you can just fly up to space. Press X while in spaceflight to summon the Anomaly, go in and use the teleporter to go wherever you need to go, when you are done press X again and select teleport back to the Anomaly.
You can easily smuggle contraband and avoid the authorities by teleporting directly from the pirate station to a planetary teleporter, avoiding space stations.
Increasing your exosuit inventory space makes things much easier. Each systems space station has an exosuit upgrade console where you can buy an extra slot. You can toggle between inventory, tech and cargo slots to decide where to put it. Adding exosuit slots to cargo by buying them quickly gets expensive – it is better to use drop-pod upgrades to expand cargo slots. You can buy drop-pod coordinate data for about 100k each from a technology merchant (or find them in other places) and then use a signal booster to find them. Drop-pod slot upgrades should go mostly into Cargo first to save cost. (perhaps use credits to buy the first few cargo slots, but when it gets expensive, then only use drop-pod method)
Holding S while in flight combat will help you to keep a target on the enemy once you have them in sights. Blasting enemy shields down and then switching to a more destructive weapon is a good early flight combat strategy. While in space flight you can press X to select recharge then hover over Deflector shield and press Ctrl-1 to set it as a quick bind, It is much easier to recharge in combat with quick binds.
Choosing the perfect spot for your main base is tricky. You might want to build a temporary base early on to get things started until you find that perfect spot. For your first big base you might want a paradise planet with no sentinel activity that has a good variety of resources, but also consider the amount of planets in that system – once you have access to the Exocraft Summoning station you will be able to summon all exocraft you have to anywhere in that system. It’s nice to have a wide range of planets. Electrical wiring is free to build and can clip through structures. Take some time to lay out your wiring nicely so you don’t end up with a big mess. If your base runs out of power you can just throw more batteries and solar panels at it – or have a proximity switch from your battery bank so things only power up when you are near them. You can put a base computer inside of an existing colossal archive (spaceport) and build on to it. This way you will have a trade terminal and a technology merchant at your home base. This is also a handy way to see high class ships arrive that you may want to purchase. It’s also fun that your base will always be buzzing with activity.
Well, I thought about it for a few days and these are the tips I would give to newish players that don’t give everything away. If you can think of anything else early game that is a good tip, but doesn’t give the whole game away then post it up, use >! Spoiler!< (but without the spaces) to create a spoiler.
Here’s some of the FAQ suggestions we received in our previous FAQ thread. Keep in mind that these are opinions from some of our valued OP’s and you may agree or disagree with some of these. We just ask that everyone remains respectful when replying to this thread and we look forward to your contribution! NMSTG Mod Team
You can also drop a quick tip!
Tip #1: Always try to be doing multiple things. Pick up the portable refiner so you can refine something from your inventory while exploring and mining.
Tip #2: Avoid multiplayer until unlocking the anomaly, can be stranded if not.
Tip #3: Exotic worlds only have 1 fauna so it’s easy to scan all of them.
Tip #4: Need glyphs? All 16 are on one planet here
Q- “I was on the Anomaly and a bunch of expensive stuff showed up in my inventory. What do I do with it? A:” Congrats! Another player has bestowed you with a gift. Most likely it is an item to sell for some quick and easy cash. Usually the item description will tell you what it is used for.
Q: “Help, I claimed a broken ship and now I can’t find my starter ship! Is it gone forever?” A:” If you merely selected to “claim” the broken ship and not “swap” it, then your old ship is still around. If you left it with launch fuel in the tank, you can summon it with the quick-menu. If it does not have fuel, it can be summoned on the Anomaly (once you unlock it), your freighter (once you acquire one).
Q- “Are crashed ships worth repairing?” A-” Unless it is an exotic, no. Scrap the ship at the space station, sell the items it gives you, and use those units to buy a better, working version of a ship in that system.
Q- “Any advice for new players?” A-“For new players, make sure you read the guide in-game. It’s an excellent beginner’s guide for traveling, learning about the alien races, building, and etc. Take a look over the catalogue of items too. Also, I’d strongly suggest mining a massive amount of carbon, oxygen, and sodium. These three items will be some of your most used and critical items in the game

I dont know if this kind of post is allowed but I just wanted to say how great this game is and how important it already is to me in so little time.
I have around 1 day of gameplay and it’s hard to describe the feeling this game gives me.
I had a dream of being an astronaut as a kid, though that dream did die a little with time, since music became my biggest passion/dream.
Still, when I found out about this game and understood all the stuff we can do on it, it definitely satisfies the part of me that would love to explore this universe.
Having my own ship, base, going anywhere I want from the dangerous and ugly planets to the beautifull and peaceful ones, it’s truly amazing.
It’s been several months since I haven’t played a game for more than 2 hours in a row, but No Man’s Sky was able to keep me playing for more than that.
Really love this game and it’s community, looking forward to many more hours of playing this masterpiece and I’m really glad the developers never gave up on it, so we can enjoy it
That’s all 🙂
